They were on the surface shallow on tonka this a.m....which was weird since there was floating new super thin ice sheets out there..

We were also getting them at about 1.5-2 ft, over about 8 ft of water.

SUPER light bite.

Hit them on Lower Prior this evening in 12-14 fow. Tube jigs seemed to be the ticket as they were not taking my minows. Anyone else had luck on Prior?

We picked up some in 4-5 FOW, fishing low on Bald Eagle. Not many, 8-10, but it was only the kids fishing, as they either broke their rods or forgot them, so I let them use mine smile.gif I was trying to cast a 1/48 oz jig with a baitcaster smile.gif hehe, didn't work so hot.

Water was 42-45 degrees.

there in shallow water because that is the water that warms up the fastest. crappies are in the warmest water they can find tright now, like in bays, real shallow in deep water.i just punded them on saturday and sunday on prior. ran out of bait on saturday sdo i cam prepared for sunday but the bite wasnt as heavy but i still caught a bunch. jiggin worked in the peak times of the day but not in the middle of the day. had to resort to live bait in the middle of the day.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
